On November 1st the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement launched Challenge 66, a month-long campaign to encourage you to leading a brain-healthy lifestyle.
Every 66 seconds a new brain develops Alzheimer’s. This challenge asks you to take 66 seconds to do something that stops the clock on Alzheimer’s. Get moving, get friends to join in, spread the word, share your story on social media with #Challenge66 and have fun. Lets work together to #endalz!
Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement™, founded by Maria Shriver, is a global alliance of individuals, organizations, researchers, foundations, influencers and industry leaders committed to finding out why Alzheimer’s discriminates against women. We believe that by answering the question of why women are disproportionately affected by Alzheimer’s, we will unlock the other mysteries surrounding this mind-blowing disease and that will lead to a cure for all. Learn more about them here.

Another November is here and another November where advocates and families of loved ones with Alzheimer’s or those serving as Caregivers to someone with Alz is in the continues trenches for a cure. We’re always at work, but November, our dedicated month is time to shine brighter, walk further, and advocate harder.
My day one was spent doing social media outreach, networking and letting people on those outlets to look out, because I will be bombarding them with information. But not bombarding you all mindlessly, but to hopefully to provide information that will be enlightening, empowering, and of course mixed in with some fun.
I also listened to most of the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement’s live stream today ( I was at work so I had to listen when I could, LOL). Great panelists, great information, some I was able to jot down quickly and for what I missed, I will go back and get. If you missed it I caught it on Maria Shriver’s Facebook page.
It’s only day one, and I know how I can get, I want to keep going and going as ideas and to-do’s pop into my head. I’m in full-on information overload, which I need to sort out to bring you the best information that I can. And in the meantime, I wish you all a healthful brain day and month.
Great News to share!
I was asked by the national women’s fitness magazine, Heart & Soul to write a piece on Alzheimer’s. As an advocate you know it’s my mission to do my part to get information out and support and resources in. I was truly honored to have this opportunity to be a voice for caregivers and share my pearls of wisdom to shed light on this awful disease. There are caregivers, advocates and readers counting on me and I accept the challenge.
